I support your right to eat steak,bacon, and drink wutever you want.

It IS your body, and you should have the right to control as you see fit.

Because it's a pipe dream.

Socialist's continually invent scapegoats to push their GD agenda.

Democratic socialism is a MONOLITHIC ideology where dissent ISN'T allowed to exist.

It, honestly, sounds like a pretty good deal to me. Rather than an elite political class telling me what to do, I can have a say in it. Don't like my ISP? I can vote to have the regulated. Think my paycheck is too low? I can vote to have it increased.

You keep licking those boots though! I'm sure the free market will reward you greatly...someday!

Subsequent posts have clearly illustrated how this inhibits personal freedoms, individual liberties, self-determination.



nope... the paragraph in the OP does none of those things... stuff other people have written have no effect on the paragraph in the OP...

Subsequent posts may show how this inhibits personal freedoms, but how, in your eyes, what the paragraph states in the OP unconstitutional?

Just because it comes from somebody that is probably a Democrat? You hate anything they say... we know...

What part of the political elite WILL STILL be telling you what to do.

Except there's no right to private property, and YOUR product doesn't belong to you.

It belongs to 300+million others.

Promoting an ideology that inhibits personal freedoms and liberties may be something you endorse, but it is not what I would.

So basically, I am roasting a turkey for my dinner tomorrow and then I will be making stock off the carcass later in the week and we'll be making soup off the leftovers next weekend. But since you favor democratic control of every facet of people's lives, even though what I am about to do to feed myself and my family for the next two weeks is extremely economical and makes good sense and is healthy and will waste nothing, if the people vote to overrule my choice (too expensive, meat is not ethical, or some such thing), I won't be able to make that choice for myself or my family in the future? No thanks. That is what he means and what his beliefs are.


Do you really think that is what he means??? Seriously he wants to control your cooking in your kitchen? But the govt does already kind of control the sale and inspection of poultry, the gas or electric you are going to use to cook it... taxed on the pans you are using to cook them in... tax on the stove when you bought it...

Everytime donald trump opens his mouth, he says something stupid. You guys (maybe not you in particular) jump in and say that is not what he meant...

Personally I find nothing in the paragraph in the OP to be bad... the govt already controls every aspect of our lives

What ideology is that? Socialism? I am commenting solely on the paragraph in the OP...

Not at all... what makes you think I would endorse that? Serious question.

Your posting history is an indicator that you would endorse the collective over self-determination, individual liberties.

If I'm mistaken, then I'm mistaken.

So you seem to hate that the people would actually have a say in how the government runs but say nothing about special interests groups and the rich dictating how this country is run.

Ok, I will say you are probably right in your statement...

But the paragraph in the OP... what is inherently wrong in what the guy said? ...

You must have looked up my posting history... I did not need to look up yours... always sarcastic, anti dem... never any actual debate from you... Typical ats trumpeter... you are right... everybody else is wrong....

So yes I think you are mistaken... I have made my way in this world with the help of a labor union. I do not know your stance on unions, but if I had to guess based soley on the position of most here on ats, I would say you are against them.,,

I am curious though, no disrespect intended, what would my posting history make you think I am against self determination and liberties?

So was the republican in SC... the only true voter fraud was a republican.... did you miss that story? I thought you were against voter fraud...

But you are not opposed to voter fraud are you?

Republicans aren't the GD topic or a posters jokes.

I wish this thread would stop getting trolled

THIS is the topic.



Ugo Okere is a 22-year-old Nigerian immigrant and democratic socialist running for Chicago City Council. In an interview, he describes his history as an activist, the smears he's faced from the incumbent, and why democratic socialism “is about democratic control of every single facet of our life.”




At twenty-two years old, Okere is one of the youngest aldermanic candidates in the city. He is running on a platform of fully funded public schools, affordable housing, lifting the statewide ban on rent control, and establishing a Civilian Police Accountability Council. He has been endorsed by the Chicago chapter of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).




Democratic socialism, to me, is about democratic control of every single facet of our life. Government is led by the people, not by big corporations, not by multibillionaires, and working people actually have control over who we elect to be our politicians, over how elections work, and over how our government is structured. People have the power.




Democratic socialism even extends to our relationships and how we treat each other. [It looks] at the world through a socialist-feminist lens, in how we treat people who are black, who are brown, who are femme, who are non-binary, who are gender-nonconforming, and who are working class.


Social justice is nothing more than a hipper version of lynching.

That part actually scares the hell out of me.

Because it means twisting reality to mean what ever the EFF they want.
